“Grease” revival

You’ll leave the theater happier

I read Misha Berson’s theater review of the musical “Grease” [“Slick, nostalgic ‘Grease’ revival,” NWMonday, May 18], even though she warned those of us who “can’t get enough of this breed of bouncy ’50s nostalgia … to read no further.”

I don’t know which performance she attended, but on the night I was there, she would have been in the minority. The theater seemed to be at full capacity with an audience that loved every moment of the show, myself included. The comments made as everyone exited the theater would validate that it was wonderful. The many revivals of “Grease,” both in theater and the movie, would indicate to me that people still enjoy, as she calls it, “this slick relic of faux ’50s nostalgia.”

I realize that the column is merely Berson’s opinion, which differs from mine. I would encourage theatergoers to take a chance and purchase a ticket. I guarantee they’ll leave the theater humming one of the many great songs and in a much better mood than when they entered — something we all need these days.
